FAQs about New Mexico Lawyers

Why do lawyers charge so much?

Lawyers will charge a lot because of the large scope of work that is required to properly fulfill their duties. In addition to the high volume of work, there is a lot on the line. One incorrect word in a contract could cause a business to get sued. If you’re looking for legal assistance within your budget range, UpCounsel provides the best assistance at a reasonable cost.

Which is better, a lawyer or an attorney?

While both are well-educated in the law, an attorney has passed the bar exam and can represent you in court, while a lawyer can only provide legal advice and assistance. If you require court representation, hiring an attorney is best. However, a lawyer will be just as effective if you are drafting a contract or reviewing legal documents.

What is higher than a lawyer?

All attorneys and lawyers receive a Juris Doctor degree, but some legal professionals continue their studies for a Master of Law (LLM) which is a higher degree. New Mexico lawyers and attorneys are not required to achieve this degree in order to assist you, but those that do have even greater knowledge and specialization in an area of law. To find a lawyer with specialized knowledge and experience, use UpCounsel.
